Re: Mark Squires' BB to close for good

Re: Switzerland Recs

Great coincidental thread, Batman!

Also heading to Switzerland at the end of August. One night in Zurich after flying in, then a few days in Verbier for a wedding. Fly out of Geneva to Madrid.

Any reccos for Verbier and/or Geneva?

Picked my 4 choices plus “Other”. The “other” I would suggest is Cuban Sandwiches in honor of Carlos Delpin (I think he’s Cuban.....not sure). Easy enough to set up the station with Cuban rolls, ham, Swiss, sliced roast pork, pickles & yellow mustard (no fancy Grey Poopoo). Instead of a plancha, wra...
